Also great for a custom game board!

What a great idea. I did a remix with some small modifications. Thanks.

I know this is old, and likely not going to get any updates....just wondering if anyone has had success printing? It seems to print a hexagon base for a few layers before beginning the outside slots for hooking them together. So since they're in the air by a few layers it just shoots the filament all over the place and makes a big rats nest. Not sure if the actual design has this gap or my printer isn't printing correctly.

Mine printed just fine, for what it's worth.

Great question. Mine seem to fall out if the picture isn't cut perfectly. I've tried double-sided tape and sticky glue all without good success. I think the real fix here will be to design in a small ridge around the inside perimeter of the hexagon. I'll certainly post the re-design if I ever get around to it. Otherwise, someone else please beat me to it.

Do you just tape the pictures in?
